The fairy Queen baked a special Christmas pie with a plum inside. No one could find the plum until...! Apparently this little book was printed in The Pictorial Review, a popular women's magazine of the day, and was designed to be cut out and sewn into a booklet by mothers or children. Quite scarce. Insect nibbles along tops of leaves and corner of last leaf. Image on page 15 is affected just at the top and only in the garland.
